On-Car Tire Truing (also called “tire shaving”
Off or On The Car Tire Truing services are available from Sunshine Service. When out-of-round tires cause driving problems, they can be corrected without buying new tires. The process requires a lathe-type machine that is designed to incrementally shave rubber off of tires that eliminates flat spots and “out-of-roundness”, in order to render the tire perfectly round. Tire Truing insures that your ride will be as smooth as possible, reducing unnecessary vibration and road noise associated with out-of-round tires. This will also extend the life of the tire, shocks, upper and lower control arm bushings, tire rod and idler arm bushings; all things that are otherwise rattled by the excessive vibrations associated with tires that are not perfectly round.
Another reason for tire truing is to match a replaced tire to your old tires. At times a tire is damaged beyond repair, and rather than purchasing four new tires for an all wheel drive vehicle that must have four-matching tires with the same outside tire diameter, customers can purchase a new tire, which can be shaved to match the other tire diameters at a significant savings.
